Note: In this case I am referring to pregnancies that are wanted , whether or not they are of a married couple is not relevant.
I never gave it any thought whether my pregnancies were mine but I expected them to be shared. Whenever pregnant I expected my partner to be involved in all decisions but I ended up making all decisions alone. To me the environment a man is brought up in influences his way of looking at pregnancies. Often adds and commercials of pregnancy target pregnant woman and not couples.
Growing up in an environment where being pregnant is something of the woman only I still expected my partner to be different. I expected him to want to be involved in all matters concerning my pregnancy. I remember wanting to go to pregnancy exercise together, going to every doctor visit together, buying all baby stuff with pleasure.
I wonder if men who are more involved with the pregnancy of their partner are better fathers. If you have written or read an article on this subject please inform me, I ‘ll be happy to be educated on this subject. Thank you.
